Terrorism’s Elephant in the Room

The Elephant in the Room

The phrase “the elephant in the room” comes from the 1950s and means something that one can see but no one wants to talk about.  It looms over a conversation and people can hint at it, but no one definitively discusses it.  The elephant in the room regarding the Global War on Terrorism is something most don’t realize.

Terrorism’s Elephant

It is something that is so simple most would agree.

Yet, it is complex that most do not want to discuss it.

However, I am taking a stand because we have entered a now or never phase.  Terrorism has attacked America again.  And it is time for all the facts to be made known.

The elephant in the room isn’t Islam.  Though there is a violent strain of Islam and the Koran is not peaceful.  Islam is not the elephant.

It isn’t Wahhabism.  Although it is a radical strain of Islam this particular elephant follows.

The elephant in the room is Saudi Arabia.  Lets look at the facts.

Facts about Terrorism and Saudi Arabia

There is some connection of financial support from Saudi Arabia for the 9/11 terrorists.

We do know that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi Arabian nationals.  That is almost 80%.

A recently released and redacted CIA report has raised more questions than it answered.  And an article from 2013 quotes individuals saying they were

absolutely shocked about the level of foreign state involvement in the attacks.

And earlier this year, 2015, Zacarias Moussaoui, alleges several Saudi royal family members provided financial support to Osama bin Laden.

Here are more headlines regarding Saudi Arabia and 9/11:

In regards to the attacks in San Bernardino, Farook traveled to Saudi Arabia and returned radicalized.  Seems that the common sense approach is to not only look at Islam but Saudi Arabia as well.  Perhaps your life depends on it.
